End Mealtime Misery with Dr. Catsby's - Giveaway

We're celebrating our 5th Blogoversary this month with some special reviews and giveaways of products we're impressed with and want to share with our readers.  We wrote about the Dr. Catsby's™ Bowl for Whisker Relief in March 2016 and explained how this bowl encouraged Brulee to eat her wet food.

Disclaimer:  We received the Dr. Catsby's Bowls for Whisker Relief for review purposes.  We were not compensated for our review.  The opinions in this post are those of Sweet Purrfections and reflect our honest review.  Dr. Catsby is not responsible for the content of this post.

We'd never heard of whisker fatigue until last year when we came across a post on Facebook about this unique bowl.  Mom Paula reached out to Dr. Catsby's to see if we could try the bowl because Brulee was exhibiting a majority of the signs of whisker fatigue in cats and Mom Paula was having difficulty getting Brulee to eat her wet food.  Look at the signs of whisker fatigue below to determine if your cat could have this problem with eating.
Does your cat exhibit signs of whisker fatigue?

If your cat is exhibiting some of the signs of whisker fatigue, then the Dr. Catsby's bowl is for you.  The bowls are made of a stainless steel finish and are wide and shallow.  The design of the bowl allows easy access to our food without causing our whiskers to be pulled back, causing discomfort.   The wide and shallow eating surface allows the food to fall to the center of the bowl, but still provides enough of an edge to prevent food from being pushed out of the bowl (Brulee does this all the time in other bowls).  The stainless steel finish helps protect against wash-proof bacteria and is dishwasher safe and includes a cutaway in the side for easy lifting from the rubber mat.  The bowl is placed on a rubber mat, which keeps it from moving around when we eat from it.  An additional benefit of this bowl for Brulee is that she can see Truffle coming since her face isn't pressed inside the bowl and therefore, will eat with less fear of being "invaded" by her greedy sister.
Features of the Dr. Catsby's Bowl for Whisker Relief

Both Truffle and Brulee continue to love eating from the Dr. Catsby's bowl.  In fact, Brulee has eaten almost every bit of her food and isn't making a mess on the floor like she did in the past.  She appears more comfortable eating close to Truffle, which makes mealtime much less stressful.  The bowl retails for $19.99, which isn't a bad price, considering the stainless steel bowl is resilient to bacteria, easy to clean, and raised high enough off the floor to make eating a little healthier for your cat.

  4. We have one of their bowls and had to put it away because the noise it made with the dry food in it scared her. But Mom Peggy may try it again and maybe use it for the wet food.

  12. I'm so grateful for you -- one of my friend's cats has been showing some of these signs and I'm sending her this post. Whisker fatigue could be the reason I think. Great to elaborate on this and the detail is really important. Thanks!

  13. We love Dr. Catsby and got to meet them at Global Pet! Rhette loves his bowl, he uses it for water though because that's what he struggled with. Love Dolly

  14. We think our cousin Shep has whisker fatigue, and we have been thinking this would be the purrrfect bowl for him.

  15. What a amazing bowl! Such a great idea for cats and i could see it working for mall dogs too!

  16. We have three cats, including a tiny, 3-week-old kitten I found in our neighbors' yard (the mother is feral and two other kittens had been killed by an animal, so I took her in and am bottle feeding her). Of the two adult cats we have, I have noticed that my Moko has issues with whisker stress. I bought her a flatter bowl, but it's not enough. This would be great for her.

  17. Bear does several of those things ... including pawing his dry food out of the bowl. I feed him his wet food treat on a plate and that seems to go much better - though it gets pushed around sometimes because there's not much resistance. I especially like that the bowl is stainless steel. Bear has issues with acne so he can't use any kind of plastic food bowl.

  18. It's an pawsome bowl. We use wide flat bowls too, though sometimes Ernie still likes to pull his food out and eat on the floor.

  19. Our kitties are not showing the any signs of whisker fatigue, but we have wanted to try one of these cool bowls.

  20. My kitties have never displayed whisker fatigue, but I already feed them on plates anyway, so I guess I wouldn't know.

  21. Happy Blogavirsary! Hope your contest is very successful!

  22. Hope the giveway goes well! I wish I'd won a bowl like that from Hauspanther!!

  23. I use shallow bowls for my girls. Kintaro is a messy eater. This bowl might keep his food in the bowl without having higher sides.

  24. My cat is showing some signs of whisker fatigue. I'm really glad I saw this post. Looks like he needs to try a different bowl.

  25. Happy 5th Blogoversary. Looks like a great bowl for your beautiful girls. XS

  26. Huh. How about that. Ricky seems to prefer his dry food over his wet food. The dry is served in a shallow bowl! Interesting.

  27. Happy Blogoversary!! A giveaway is such a great way to celebrate 5 years of successful blogging.

  28. Happy Blogoversary! 5 years - what an accomplishment! Great review too. We won a Dr. Catsby bowl from Christy Paws a while back, but with 7 cats, we could use more of them! We love them. Thanks for the great giveaway

  29. Carmine seems to like eating out of his whisker relief bowl, and we would love another.

  30. I think my oldest cat has whisker fatigue. This bowl would be perfect for her.

  31. Congrats on 5 years. That is such a cool bowl!

  32. Happy Blogoversary!!! :) My cat likes to eat the top layer of her food. I think this may be a sign of whisker fatigue. This bowl would be perfect for her!

  33. One of my kitties has whisker fatigue. The other one will eat out of anything. I love these bowls, but even at $19.99 are a little out of my price range right now. Thanks for the giveaway.

  34. I used to see a lot of signs of whisker fatigue in Cinco. He was a big kitty with really long whiskers. Manna is much smaller and Dexter is smaller yet (at the moment). I do see Manna get annoyed when her whiskers touch things as she tries to eat.
